Welcome to the third Blogger’s Quilt Festival!  I’m so glad that you are here – and I hope that you plan to enter a quilt in the Festival! Everyone is welcome to participate, this is a relaxed festival with no judging, no gloves, and beverages are allowed, encouraged even!  :)


Many “Thank You’s” go out to our sponsors! They have been fun and gracious to work with in the weeks leading up to today.  And the prizes they are offering are so generous!  Be sure to visit each of the shops as you enjoy the show.  They each have a button to the right, and I have a list of prizes below the entries.

I have been so thankful to have my laptop while getting the details together this time around and I cannot wait to sit on the couch and take in all the inspiration!  I hope you have a comfy seat too – this may take a while.


While you are blog hopping – let me know if you see a quilter you would like to see featured on my blog.  I plan to continue the Friday features after the festival and always need more nominations!


Are you ready!?

To Participate : :
1 – Write a new post (old posts will be deleted).  Share one quilt, and it’s story.  Why you made it, why it is special to you, what you learned about quilting/yourself while making it.  The quilt doesn’t have to be brand new, never seen before on you blog – show what you like!

2 – In your post link back to the festival (posts without a link will also be deleted).  You can do this with a button, just copy and paste the code into your post, if all else fails.

3 – Share a link to your post, in the mr linky – be sure to post to that specific post please.  Right click on your post title, to copy link address, then paste it in the linky.

4 – Leave me a comment to be entered into giveaways.  Maybe you can tell me approximately how many quilts you have made so far.  Or if you finished a quilt just for the Festival.  Or how many quilts you have on your to do list.  It’s fun to learn something about you as I read all the comments :)

5 – Visit all the other quilters sharing their quilts and be inspired!



6 – If you are on flickr, consider adding your entry to the Group Pool, it’s great to see all the quilts in the gallery.

The Festival will be accepting links through next Friday, the 28th.  After that the linky will be closed and the links made permanent on this post.  Giveaway winners will be announced the following day.

I think that’s everything!  I hope you enjoy the show :)
